Think Over It !!

Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it.

two difficult emotions !

The two emotions which are not only difficult to handle but cause immense trouble when we operate under their influence are anger and fear. I do not think they are independent of each other. I feel keeping in check these two, most of the problems can be handled in personal as well as societal life. I happened to see an incident yesterday which reminded me of this simple fact again.

Let me not do it !

Why is it so easy for humans to pass judgement about others ?
Why do we conclude quickly just looking at the superficial level ?
It is just being insensitive or indifferent to some one's feelings. After all unless you yourself go through the motions some one has gone through you will not appreciate it fully.
In other words, never ever, dear self jump to conclusion when it concerns others. I repeat this fact to myself, every time I get hurt on account of being (mis)judged by the other wise men/women. One such moment is just passing by and am sure will not last long. Many a times it is not really worth trying to clarify or prove yourself but this time I take it as a challenge to prove some one  wrong(over a period of next three years). Amen !

I wonder

Sometimes I wonder, as a parent, while bringing up our kids we teach them or learn from them. Or may be to put it right this should not be a question at all. It is obviously both ways. We teach them and we learn from them. Many times while trying to give my 'Calvin' a dose of wisdom in simple or complicated way, I feel probably I need it to be implemented in my life first. I feel it is a kind of  having double standards in your life. Preach one thing and practice something else. It is so easy to demand from others to change and an uphill task to bring the change in you. But certainly this way I feel the pressure to bring out that change, much more on myself. Learning is a life long process, right from our birth to death we do learn something or the other in many different ways and from many different sources.
Among the various methods to learn I have come across till now,
I find this one very effective.
